It’s April Fool’s Day. But the chances of becoming disabled is no joke.

You, disabled? What are your chances?

Higher than you probably think. You can ignore the problem, but it’s hard to ignore the facts:

  • Almost one-third of Americans entering the work force today (3 in 10) will become disabled before they retire.
  • Freak accidents are NOT usually the culprit. Back injuries, cancer, heart disease and other illnesses cause the majority of long-term absences.

Are you prepared if it happens to you? Probably not. If you’re like most Americans, you don’t have disability insurance. Or enough emergency savings to last 2½ years. Yes, that’s the duration of the average long-term disability.
